Rubielos de Mora
Rubielos de Mora is in the southeast of Teruel province, 52 kilometres from its capital. It sits on an undulating plain at 929 m altitude, in the Gúdar-Javalambre region.
A geographic, cultural and economic crossroads, Rubielos de Mora provides a great natural viewpoint over the highlands of Teruel, more than justifying its nickname as the "Gateway to Aragon".
It is also commonly referred to as the “Court of the mountains” owing to the large number of ancestral homes and notable buildings that constitute this Historic-Artistic Site (Europa Nostra Award 1983).
The town of Rubielos belongs to the "Cittaslow" Network of Municipalities for quality of life and is a recognised stop on the Camino del Cid.
Visitors should not miss the ex-collegiate church of Santa Maria la Mayor with its wonderful fifteenth-century international Gothic altarpiece, dedicated to the Life of the Virgin, or the town's grandest secular building: its Town Hall, a beautiful
renaissance construction with an exchange on the first floor that will not leave you indifferent.
Strolling through Rubielos you will find an endless number of ancestral and stately homes that belonged to great nobles, featuring beautiful stonemasonry and ironmongery, eaves and coats of arms. The town is also home to two convents: the Carmelite convent with its impressive cloister and that of the Augustinian nuns, outside the walls.
Another must-see is the work of local artists José Gonzalvo and Salvador Victoria, exhibited in the museums dedicated to each, and the Ambarina Region (Dinópolis)
The original walls that protected Rubielos at one stage had 7 portals by which the town could be accessed; today, we can admire two, San Antonio and Del Carmen (fourteenth century).
Lastly we must not forget the different chapels that offer a pleasant way for visitors to Rubielos to organise a pleasant stroll through its streets, paths or trails.
The Rubielos de Mora tourist office offers tours of the historical complex accompanied by local guides who will reveal the secrets and details of this beautiful town.
